Published in Indonesia as Private High School For Beautiful Girls and Yankee Swears His Love ~I wish you are happy~ by PT Tiga Lancar Semesta/Tiga Lancar Comic (3L)

Both Private High School For Beautiful Girls 1 and Yankee Swears His Love are rated for   DEWASA or Mature readers.

Bijinzakajoshi (High School For Beautiful Girls) turns girls into women of good standing, so what is Nonomiya En, expelled from her last school, doing there? Just on her first day, En already gets into trouble and receives a notice of war.

1000% spirited! goes the original Japanese description of Private High School For Beautiful Girls; Sugar-Oasis (excerpted by Baka-Updates Manga) adds that En, sneaking out, meets Narushima Chihiro, 1st year student at Jouyama Boys' High, which accounts for why the ex-Betsucomi romance comedy is tagged All-Boys School in addition to the expected All-Girls School, Strong Female Lead.

3L has published quite a few of Yokoyama Mayumi-sensei's works, including Galism - 3 Sisters First Class Love, Four Pure Loves, I Love High School, M's Dilemma, Boy's Story and 4 Reason to Love Him.

Yankee Swears His Love by Watanabe Shiho, Yoshiie Hiroyuki

Teh other premiere, Yankee Swears His Love ~I wish you are happy~, is the farthest from hijinks, busying itself with questions about self and the search for identity:

Kana, the unwitting cause of her brother's death, feels lost. Not only does she have to deal with her parents' divorce, she also has to struggle to get along with her mother who gains custody (and their relationship is deteriorating by the day). Kana seeks her place in the world beside a boyfriend, only to suffer heartbreak when he ups and betrays her. Pushed to the brink, Kana attempts suicide, but fails and is forced to withdraw from school. Her mother, too, deserts her.

Just when all seems hopeless, Kana meets Yoshiie...

I assume this Yoshiie is the Yankee of the title. I have no idea whether the character has anything to do with Yoshiie Hiroyuki who is co-credited for this shoujo drama. (The Japanese summary doesn't say.)

UP NEXT

I speculate that Nakagaki Tomoe's Teacher/Student-troped Honey Boy 1 (Hachimitsu Shounen) will street soon, seeing as it's advertised at the end of I Need Job!! 2.
